Miller doesn’t play a job on Ted Lasso, however she’s extra accustomed to doing double obligation, as she did for Scrubs, Cougar City, and now Shrinking. “After I’m in a present and I’m doing the music, the timing works out completely,” she says. “I’ve time earlier than to prep. I can take heed to music in my automotive and determine it out with all of the characters and scenes. After which afterwards, we’re often wrapped for the season once they begin actually modifying.”

However Ted Lasso was not a present she was ever going to look in. When the present’s cocreator—and Miller’s husband, with whom she shares three kids—Invoice Lawrence requested her to tackle the function of music supervisor, she found she’d be working carefully not solely with co-music supervisor Tony Von Pervieux, however with cocreator and star Jason Sudeikis too. “He has nice music style, and he was very particular about a number of the music decisions,” Miller says.

However Sudeikis introduced in his personal style to create a mix that completely parallels the present’s story of an American coach touring throughout the pond to educate a British soccer staff. “It’s cool to work with somebody that has a special music sensibility than you do,” she says. “I do know his music, nevertheless it’s not music that I usually work with.”

The tune is performed because the staff watches an inspiration video throughout halftime that then leaves them crying on the sphere—and lets the viewers chortle. “It was such an ideal placement for a tune as a result of that’s what you need: If you may make somebody cry, then it’s actually humorous.”

Miller prefers to characteristic songs of their entirety as an alternative of snippets—“I solely actually wish to use songs that I really like and that I believe are nice”—and says the actual magic occurs whenever you pair a terrific tune with a terrific scene. “The goosebumps are whenever you’ve matched a particular tune with the scene correctly that’s not too on the nostril and that’s totally different than you thought it could be,” she says.
